    Yes, that has happened to me and I think "wow, I must have good taste if someone else is using it too". LOL

    ALL the time. I use it as an inspiration to see which other colors they paired.

    I do that and can tell that they either bought it at Walmart, or that we sell the same thing at Walmart! Oh, the perils of working in the fabric dept. lol

    Nope, not yet. I haven't been quilting long enough to have accumulated much in the way of a stash. But I do look at the pictures and find fabrics that I need to buy! :)

    Occasionally I see something that I have or had or looked at to buy. I love seeing what others are doing with specific patterns/colors!

    Yes atleast twice. When Wm marked down the fabric of the month collection. I came on here and someone had posted pic's of the fabrics they just got at WM and I had just bought the same ones.

    I saw one in a picture just yesterday, one I've had for quite a while and haven't wanted to use. It looked good!

    Quite often, and I love seeing how they used it, especially if I haven't used mine yet.

    Often and I also enjoy seeing how they used it.

    It's fun to see what designs folks come up with that never even occured to me. Makes it interesting.

    Imagine 30, 40, 50 years from now, folks will be looking at our work and saying,"do you remember that fabric?"

    Now if someone could show me how they have used the Nature's Notebook Layer Cakes by Moda, that would be a big help too.

    I know about working at walmart in fabric dept. That is why when I retired I have such a stash. But can't resist buying more when I go to visit my friends. :lol:

    Yes, all the time. I assume they spend as much time and money as I do at Hancocks. I have just started going to Joanns again recently. Its good to see a different selection.

    Every now and again I will see fabric used in a quilt that I recognize as fabric I bought a while back and used when I was making cat beds to sell at the cat shows. Can tell who uses a lot of Wal-mart, Joann's and Hancock fabric for sure, LOL!
